Richmond-upon-Thames Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Surrey...

The only London borough whose boundary spans the River Thames, leafy Richmond - an amalgam of a dozen or so towns - has more than 20 miles of river bank as well as the glorious Richmond Park, one of London's most attractive open spaces, and the major attractions of Kew's Botanical Gardens and Hampton Court Palace. The latter is the oldest Tudor palace in the country and one of Henry VIII's masterpieces.

Marble Hill House, built in the 18th century for Henrietta Howard, mistress of King George III, is also open to the public, as is Twickenham Rugby Stadium and Museum.

Ham House is reputed to be one of Britain’s most haunted properties. A superb Stuart mansion, it has lavish interiors, beautiful formal gardens and a 17th century-style kitchen garden.
